This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is deep squat hold courtesy of Andy Van Grinsven. 

You should do this because– this exercise helps with hip mobility which is a use it or lose it scenario. And seeing we spent so much time sitting down, it always helps to train your hip mobility.

Makes your everyday life easier because– being mobile at the hips means you’re less likely to screw up your lower back because a lack of hip mobility is bad news for your back.

Form tips – Try to keep your head and chest up and push your elbows into your knees. Hold for 5 seconds in the bottom position and do 6-8 reps before a leg training or when you have been sitting a lot.
